Gee Nathan one thing I noticed immediately, apart from good exposure /
composition, was the neat design of the store, I suppose the leaning walls
help keep books on the shelves! ;-)  :-)

extra care the camera is held horizontally and vertically straight,

For those who think I'm on Nathan's case about what some would perceive as a
minor detail, I'm not hard on his case simply for something to nit pick. But
